Shoreham Airport in Sussex - currently home to light aircraft only - declared itself ready for major expansion today with plans to start daily flights to Paris next year.
Explorer and aviation enthusiast Neil Laughton is launching Brighton City Airways. He plans four flights a day to Pontoise-Cormeille aerodrome, 16 miles north-west of the French capital.
And if the airline succeeds, there may be flights from Shoreham to other European cities. Derek Johnson has the story and speaks to Neil and Jonathon Candelon of Brighton City Airways.
